Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tucson AZ 312 AM MST Sat Mar 28 2020
SYNOPSIS. After a chilly start this morning, temperatures will quickly rebound by the afternoon. Another weak system will pass through the region Sunday into Monday, but will be dry. By next Tuesday, temperatures will rise into the 80s for many locations with continued dry weather.
DISCUSSION. It is a chilly morning with higher valleys south and east of Tucson in the middle 20s to lower 30s and the Tucson Metro generally in the upper 30s. A few cold spots along washes and the northeast side are hovering close to the freezing mark. Would not be shocked to see a couple locations reach freezing, however it would be very brief. By late morning/early afternoon, we forget all about the chilly morning as the region quickly warms into the 60s south and east of Tucson to around 70 degrees for the lower deserts.
Sunday into Monday another upper level low will move through the region. It won't have any moisture to tap into so the only effect it will have on sensible weather will be some afternoon breezes and slightly cooler temperatures. Thereafter expect dry conditions under mostly zonal flow with a couple weak disturbances moving through. By Tuesday, temperatures will be in the 80's across most of the area and stay that way through at least Friday.
There are hints of a weak system next weekend, which would increase winds, cool temperatures slightly, and possibly result in a few showers favoring the AZ/NM border. However confidence is rather low At this time.
AVIATION. Valid through 29/12Z. SKC today then increasing clouds AOA 20k ft this evening through tonight. Winds light and variable except NWly 6-12 kts this afternoon. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
FIRE WEATHER. Dry weather with seasonable temperatures through the middle of next week with low afternoon humidity levels. A passing dry weather system will bring a bit of a SW breeze Sunday afternoon then west to northwest winds in the Gila region Sunday night into Monday. Winds light otherwise.
TWC WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
